By the way, there’s a game tonight

It isn’t the ideal situation, but it’s part of college basketball. After a tough loss to nationally-ranked Gonzaga last Saturday in Vancouver, Canada, the Hawaii basketball team returned home on Sunday, and then had just one day to prepare for its next opponent.

The Warriors will host Eastern Washington on Tuesday, November 22, at 7 p.m. at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Hawaii used Sunday as a travel/recovery day, and then practiced on Monday.

What might help both teams is that they already shared a common opponent this season — Gonzaga.

Eastern Washington lost at Gonzaga, 77-69, while the Warriors lost to Gonzaga 73-54.

Eastern Washington is 1-2 this season, with the losses on the road at Gonzaga and Oregon. Its top player is Collin Chiverton, a 6-foot-6 junior wing. He is averaging 19.3 points per game and has made 14 3-pointers in three games. If his name sounds fammiliar, it is because he was mentioned as a possible Hawaii recruit last season when he was at a California junior college.

Hawaii is 1-1, and the leading scorer after two games is senior Zane Johnson. The 6-6 senior is averaging 18.0 points per game, and has made 10 3-pointers in two games.

Freshman point guard Shaquille Stokes is averaging 15.5 points per game, sophomore forward Trevor Wiseman is contributing 11.0 points and 11.0 rebounds per game, and junior center Vander Joaquim is contributing 9.0 points and 10.0 rebounds per game.

  1. i remember i was high on getting collin…this is the type of player we need and every team needs/has this type of player but unfortunately we got the wrong one in joston lol…others would have been loveridge, deng, mitchell, blackwell or du’vaughn

  2. Yeah, me too, I was a big fan of Chiverton because of his scoring ability and athleticsm. I can’t wait to see how he does against Hawaii tonight.
